Valentine's Day Gift

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you what I got as a gift from one of my best friends for Valentine's Day. We both had to work that day, so we wouldn't have any plans and decided to get each other something. I ended up getting her 3 MAC pro pan shadows and a 15 pan palette, forgot to take pictures before giving them to her. They were her first MAC items and she was super excited to get them. She being such a good friend, knows how much I love MAC and picked me up 2 of the new Kissable Lip Colours. Honestly, I was so shocked when she gave them to me because she picked out the colors I had planned to get the next day. Honestly, great minds think alike lol. The colors she got me were So Vain & Scan-Delicious. I'm loving these soo much. I've worn both of them and they are such a great product.

Have you tried the Kissable Lip Color?



Swag Shoppin: Bath & Body Work

Hey ladies, haven't posted in the longest time and I wanted to share with you the new candles I picked up from Bath & Body Works. They are from the new Spring/Summer collection and I honestly can't wait to use them. The new scents they came out with are amazing. The ones I picked up were:

14.0 oz Island Colada
14.0 oz Bahama Fizz - I really need to get ahold of another one of these, smells amazing
4.0 oz Tiki Beach
4.0 oz Pink Sangria

Honestly, I'm dying to get my hands on more of the new scents because I'm absolutely loving them all.
Have you picked up any new candles from Bath & Body Works?



Swag Shoppin: La Senza

Hey ladies, this is my last haul from the semi-annual sale that La Senza was having. My mom asked me to grab her a couple more bras and she said I could grab some for myself as well and these are the 3 I picked up. The pink one is a Body Kiss lightly line, the purple one (looks blue) is a Perfectly Me Removable Push and the last one is a Perfectly Me light line Demi. These are one of my favorites to wear from La Senza and I got them for $9.99.

Did you grab anything before the sale ended?



NOTD: 02.22.12

Hey ladies, haven't posted anything in awhile but I wanted to share with you what I will be rocking on my nails for the rest of the week. Lately, I've been into glitter polishes and I decided to use Revlon Facets of Fuchsia on top of Essie Power Clutch on the accent nails. Really enjoying this combo and I can't wait to switch it up again next week.

What are you currently wearing on your nails?



Swag Shoppin: Baby Lips

Hey ladies, I was finally able to get my hands on a couple of the new Maybelline Baby Lips. I've been wanting to get my hands on these for awhile so I could try them out but just hadn't gotten around to doing so. So one day a few weeks ago I ran into Superstore to pick up pull ups for princess and I spotted a rack that had cosmetics for 50% off and to my surprise there were a bunch of the baby lips on sale. I didn't know which ones to get, so I only grabbed 2. The regular price for one was $5 but seeing they both for 50% off it was like buy 1 get 1 free. They ones I picked up were Quenched & Peppermint. I can't wait to give these a try, I've heard a lot of great things about them.

Have you tried the baby lips? What do you think of them?



Swag Shoppin: Zara

Hey ladies, I just have to come share with you the new heels I picked up from Zara. I never shop at Zara; it's currently not in my budget at all. But the other day I went shopping and I was looking to buy a pair of over the knee boots but I didn't find any that I really liked. So on my way out of the mall I passed by Zara and they had the huge sale signs in the window, so I went to have a look. Omgosh they had so many great things on sale and I wanted to buy it all. I ended up trying on a few skirts and I didn't really like how they looked and while walking out of the change rooms I spotted both pair of heels on a table saying prices start at $29.99. I picked up the green ones looking for my size and omgosh it was the last pair; they were originally $99.90 and they were on sale for $39.99 but to my surprise the sales associate walking by let me know that they had just gone down to $19.99!! Omgosh, I just had to have them. Then while trying to see if they had anymore great deals, I spotted the black ones. They were originally $99.90 and I got them for $19.99!!! I'm absolutely in love with both of them and beyond happy that I walked into Zara that day. After tax I only spent $42 which was amazing. I saved around 80% off the regular price. Beyond happy with these new heels and I can't wait to wear them out.






Have you ever bought heels from Zara?

Swag Shoppin: PINK!

Hey ladies, just trying to catch up on some posts that I'm behind on. A few weeks ago PINK was having there semi-annual sale and everyone at my job was talking about their sweaters. So I had to get one. It has the fur on the inside which it makes it great for cold days in my city, I wear it under my jacket when I want to be extra warm. It was originally $118 and was marked down to $50 but when I went to cash out it came up as $30. This was a fabulous buy and I'm super happy I got it. I even convinced my babysitter to get one and she ended up getting 2 lol. But I'm loving this sweater and I wait to get another one, one day.


What do you think of PINK sweaters?

Swag Shoppin: Bench

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you my new winter jacket. I've been in need of an actual winter jacket. A few weeks ago, maybe a month, it was super cold in my city. Around -42C, it was the worse thing ever and I finally made up my mind to find a good quality jacket. Originally, I was planning on purchasing a TNA jacket but it was $245 and I really didn't want to spend that on a jacket, especially since hours at my job are getting cut. So I decided I would look around and see who else had some great jackets. I stumbled into Bench and they were having a sale with an extra 30% off. The jacket was $200 but was on sale for $150 and with the extra 30% off I only spent $115 after taxes. I'm super happy with this jacket. It keeps me warm and cozy on cold days and it fits me very well. This was my first purchase from Bench but I definitely will buy from them again.

What do you think of this jacket? Have you owned a Bench jacket before?



Swag Shoppin: Material Girl

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by real quick before I go back to studying to share with you what I picked up from Material Girl. So I picked up these 3 items from The Bay. They were on sale with an extra 30% off. So I picked up a shirt, dress and blazer. It all cost me less then $45 for everything. I have worn the blazer a lot of times to work and its super cute. I have to do an outfit of the day on its super soon.



Have you bought anything from the Material Girl clothing line?

Valentine's Day Tutorial Idea

Hey ladies, just wanted to get your feed back on what kind of look I should film for Valentine's this year. I wanted to film between 2 or 3 looks, seeing I didn't do any last year.

And maybe a dramatic eye and a nude lip.


Do you have any suggestions on what I should do?

TOTD: 01.27.12

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you the new color I've been rocking on my toes. For about the last month or so I've been wearing Essie Midnight Cami but now I feel that I need a change. I went with this beautiful rose/berry color from OPI. I'm pretty sure it's from the Miss Universe collection that came out last year and it's called Congeniality Is My Middle Name. I'm thinking this will be the new color I'm rocking for February.

What do you think of this color?




NOTD: 01.27.12

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by and share with you what I'm currently wearing on my nails. Lately, I've loving Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Polish in Strobe Light and OPI Rising Star. I used these as accent colors for my manicure this week. The amazing royal blue color is OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It! I'm loving how this combination looks together, the royal blue and gold go great together.

What's your favorite royal blue polish?




NOTD: 01.21.12

Hey ladies, here is another late post on my nails from last week. I was feeling to wear a blue or teal/turquoise color and I went with Essie Trophy Wife. On my accent finger I used OPI Rising Star and on 2 random fingers I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Nail Polish Strobe Light; been loving this polish so much lately. I really liked how it turned out and I got a ton of compliments while at work; everyone asking what colors and polishes did I use.

What are you currently wearing on your nails?




NOTD: 01.12.12

Hey ladies, I'm so behind on posting this but I still wanted to share with you. So a couple weeks ago I wanted to wear a dark wine color and I went with OPI Romeo & Joliet. It seems to be a dark wine/berry color with a gold/copper duo chrome effect. It was so pretty by itself that I wore it on all my nails.

What do you think of this color? What's your favorite dark wine/berry polish?



Swag Shoppin: La Senza

Hey ladies, so I did it again. I stopped by La Senza and grabbed a few more things from the Semi-Annual Sale. Honestly, I'm sooo done shopping at La Senza until Spring hopefully. Starting to run out of room for the all bras, panties and lingerie I've been buying lately. Anyways, they had a bunch of bras on sale for $9.99 so I grabbed 3 for myself and 2 for my mom, which aren't pictured. I was also lucky enough to pick up a bathrobe for myself to leave at the boyfriend's house.


They are still having some great deals. I can't wait to get my hands on some of the things they have in store for Valentine's Day and Spring.
